The Portable Freeware Collection

The Portable Freeware Collection is a site dedicated to the collection and cataloging of freeware that can be extracted to any directory and run independently without prior installation. You can carry these applications around on a memory stick / USB flash drive, or copy / migrate from PC to PC via simple copying of files —hence the term portable freeware.



Some freeware already come in the form of a ZIP file, ready to be extracted and run from any directory. Others require an extraction procedure, which could be as simple as installing them, extracting the necessary files, and uninstalling them again.



This website has a comprehensive list of portable applications neatly classified in categories, plus a handy RSS feed which will let you know of new additions to their list.
